What are your handles actually made from?
They are made from a collection of metal alloys that are developed into an old period design. The end result is a stunning traditional black antique effect. In some cases the ironmongery is hand made using a blacksmith technique.
I want to replace my front door furniture with black antique, where do I start?
Everything you need should be available from the black antique door furniture page. The filter to the left of the page is a great help for you to identify the relevant piece of hardware you need. When it comes to fitting the black hardware then this is a relatively simple job on a timber door requiring only a simple fixing via screws. If you are looking to add black antique furniture to a pvc door this will be a little trickier and will require special letterplates and euro door handles.
Can the black handles be used externally as well as internally?
Yes they can. The standard finish is a durable coating so your black antique hardware can be used as you choose. In coastal areas you may need to expect some delapadation over time.
Are the various furniture items in your range colour matched?
All of the ironmongery items in our collection are matched from the same manufacturer. If there are several manufacturers they may be specified differently but otherwise you can be confident they will all have the colour whether letter;lates, door bells, door numbers etc.
Are your handles sprung?
All of our lever handles are sprung and considering their weight it is important to ensure that any such handles carry springs.
Do I need to buy special latches or locks?
Do you have a range of cabinet furniture to match the black ironmongery?
Yes we have a good range of black pull handles and knobs for use with cabinets and cupboards and these are a great match for the handles around your home in black antique.
